Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA) vacancies
The Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA) is an independent humanitarian medical NGO that was created in 2009 by professionals of humanitarian medicine. ALIMA’s mission is to provide medical care in emergency situations or medical catastrophes. The story of ALIMA began in 2009 in Niger. While the entire medical profession witnessed an alarming peak of acute malnutrition and increasing infant mortality rates, the health structures for managing malnutrition were becoming increasingly rare.
The year before, many international NGOs had been expelled from the country. Local NGOs were the only ones left to act, but they lacked resources. From these conditions came the idea to create a model of humanitarian organization: an African medical alliance connecting national NGOs and international research institutes. ALIMA was born. Since the beginning of this adventure, ALIMA has treated more than 6 million people in 13 countries around the world, mainly in Africa.
Our model of governance is based on local NGOs being an integral part of ALIMA. Our African partners are experienced and create solutions adapted to local or regional contexts. Departing from conventional humanitarian protocols, a network of partner organizations increases the impact of our medical emergency programs, especially in areas of conflict with high mortality rates.
In addition, our strength resides in the fact that we have a majority of national African employees, who represent 98% of all ALIMA employees, at all levels, from country directors to our operational headquarters in Dakar. Because our mission goes far beyond healing and saving lives, innovation and medical research are at the heart of our actions to find lasting solutions and to ensure we are not faced with the same medical crises twice. We aim to propose innovative projects to meet the challenges of 21st century humanitarian medicine.
ALIMA’s purpose is to save lives and to care for the most vulnerable populations, without any discrimination based on identity, religion or political affiliation. Our actions rely on proximity, innovation, and the alliance of organizations and individuals. We act with humanism, impartiality and with the respect of universal medical ethics.
